Burger House - Boca Raton, FL


Less than a month ago a fresh smell of grease hit the air in Boca Raton. Just west of Federal Highway on Spanish River Blvd lies the Boca Burger House. This little burger joint is packing a serious punch. Monster sized burgers with fresh toppings creating a mouthwatering experience. We popped in for lunch to an empty dining room (12pm) but that soon changed as every booth was full within 15 min. Not even a month in business and word is spreading…



The menu is pretty straight forward. They don't go crazy with "pub style / hand crafted / gourmet" burgers… They stick to the basics and do them well.


Big Mat with Cheese , NickFuse joined myself, Lunchbox for the afternoon delight. We all found something different to order… Big Mat with Cheese went with the Black n' White Burger with added jalapeños (kid loves his jalapeños). NickFuse had the California Burger. While Lunchbox went with the Super House Special.

All in all, we were pretty unanimous that the flavors of each burger was great. However, the toppings may of been a bit overwhelming. Just too much. Every combination of flavor for the burgers was spot on. The cilantro dip on the California burger was perfect. Keep that with a simple slice of red onion and keep the avocado and the burger is perfectly light with a spicy kick. Not falling apart as soon as you pick it up. Also, the fried egg and bacon on the Super House Burger were right on but the amount of onion… 2 fully sliced onions just was overkill & not enough "magic sauce". Lastly, the Blue Cheese on the Black n' White was very fresh just overpowering when every single bite is fully loaded with blue cheese. Sometimes it can be too much.



DO NOT SKIP DESSERT!!!!
WOW! We had to try the homemade, yes home made pies! Boca Style creamy cheesecake with a bit of a ricotta cheese filling. A NY Style turtle cheesecake. Lastly we tried the Islamorada style Key lime Pie. I'm not sure what awards they have won for what seems to be self-proclaimed "award winning burgers" but I can tell you that these dessert are officially in 1st place in my book!

"Sharing your leftovers…"

Thanks Dr. Marino of The Rand Eye Institute for being a loyal follower and checking out one of our favorite local burger spots - Jack's Old Fashioned Hamburger House… Looked like he truly enjoyed his burger topped with lettuce, tomato, pickles, ketchup, mayo & jalapeños. Can't forget his vanilla milkshake to wash it all down. (Great choice!)

His rating: WELL-DONE (5 out of 5)

Super Dave's Diner - Boca Raton


Slowly becoming the go-to local BBQ joint in East Boca, Super Dave's Diner has marinated it's way right into the stomachs of many food critics. I for one, love me some BBQ but today was all about the burger. Yes, Super Dave has is own bottled sauce and yes, he has his own bottled conch batter but again, we're here for the burger. After a solid showing at the Boca Burger Battle back in July, it was time to head over there to give the "Boca Burger Battle Burger" a try...

This mountain of fried pickles, fired tomatoes and fried red onions topped the full pound-double patty beef burger along with cheese and Dave's Special Sauce.


Every bite had great flavor. The meat was seasoned nicely. The fried veggies we're not overdone and not overly breaded to really overpower the heaviness of the burger. Yes, I know, it's a lot of fried food on a burger but it all became a nice soggy/juicy/sweet topping when combined with the special sauce.

As we we're eating this, Dave actually decided to make himself one for lunch. You know its good when the Chef/Owner is so impressed (and hungry) that he makes himself the signature burger.
